*Prizes are pari-mutuel, meaning they depend on the number of entries into each draw and the number of winners in each division. The percentages in this table show how much of the total prize pool is used to fund each division.
There is no prize for matching four numbers in Powerball. If you match two, three or four numbers, you must also have the Powerball to win a prize.
The Powerball jackpot starts at $4 million and rolls over to the next draw if there are no Division 1 winners. After the jackpot hits $10 million, it rolls over by at least another $10 million for every subsequent draw until it is won. There is a rollover limit of 25 consecutive draws in a row before the jackpot would have to be won, and the money would then go to winners in Division 2 if required.
However, there has never been a Must Be Won draw in Powerball, as the game attracts millions of extra players once it rises past $100 million. This leads to more of the possible combinations being covered and the chances of someone winning go up. Go to the Biggest Winners page to find out about Powerball’s top jackpots.
